Re: 12V 1700W Quick Anchor windlass - bearings
We had the same issue, it was the brushes
. It is worth putting a breaker on the motor to stop them taking to many amps. 200 is a lot.
When the brushes wear out they start getting power hungry, simple fix and Quick provide replacement parts
We have since upgraded the winch for various reasons to a Lewmar
, and this needs the brushes changing every couple of years as well.
